Summary

In 1890's London the highest paid private detective is a woman - Rebecca Bowen. After the untimely death of her husband, Lady Montbury holds a series of séances. Unfortunately the spiritual communication she's looking for isn't what she's expecting.

The creature that has taken up residence in the manor is described as being like a cage full of fluttering birds. It is accompanied by an overpowering, putrid smell reminiscent of an open grave. People disappear, disembodied moaning floats through the residence, and no one escapes the feeling of being watched.

In An Elemental Horror Rebecca is faced with one of her strangest cases to date. She, her secretary Polly Penniford and her body guard, Russian born Jack Saunders, must travel to Montbury Manor to investigate, find and stop the evil before it kills.

Remainder of Cast: John Empy, Mark West. Cover Artist and Announcer: Wednesday Wolf. Sound Design: Aesop AmesMusic. Composed and Performed by Thomas Chaillan. Awards: Spirit of Moondance, Moondance International Film Festival 2010.

A Quirky Old Time Favourite For Open Minded Detective Lovers

An unusual little production by not so much known Sable Jak, about a Victorian upperclass daughter who goes on a murder hunt. It is in three parts and although the acting is a little dated it still has an old style charm.

All who enjoy a good Victorian murder, will enjoy this. It is not a Sherlock by any means, but if you enjoy the story for what it is, you will want to listen time and again. It is a bit unusual and may not be everyone's cup of tea, so do listen to the taster before buying.

I wish there were more like this, but unfortunately this is the only one. It takes you away from the usual norm of detective productions and it is what I like. I am a Sherlockian to the heart, but I have an open mind and all though this is weak in some areas, a little classic all on its own.

appalling amateurish drivel

If this book wasn’t for you, who do you think might enjoy it more?

can't think of anyone

Has An Elemental Horror put you off other books in this genre?

oh yes definitely

How could the performance have been better?

controlled nuclear explosion in the studio

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from An Elemental Horror?

all of it - waste of time and money

Any additional comments?

never heard such poorly acted appalling accented people in my entire life including children's school productions- which have been far better

Abysmal.

English accents that caused the ear to bleed painfully, a Russian accent that was s atrocious that might actually be a casus belli, and editing that would have been better accomplished with a Realistic brand cassette recorder made this unlistenable. A tragic waste of both an Audible credit and several minutes of my life.

Classic country house mystery

Enjoyable. I didn’t realize how much I liked it until I was listening to the music at the end and letting images of the play float through my mind.
